So, you mean that your flash routinely overexposes the shot? I don't think that you should mess with your shutter settings, the camera can only sync with the flash within a certain range. I think you should either dial down the power of the flash -- if the flash has that capability -- or use aperture priority or manual and use a smaller aperture (larger f/number) than the flash is calling for. Either of these methodes should cut down the light making the exposure darker.
